The Symposium on Sustainability is Iowa State University's annual event dedicated toward celebrating the sustainability initiatives and achievements of students, faculty, and staff during the past year and informing of goals and action items being pursued in the upcoming year.

The 9th Annual Iowa State University Symposium on Sustainability, "Engaging, Enabling and Empowering our Sustainable Future", will be held Monday, February 19 and Tuesday, February 20, 2018.

As well as a poster and tabling reception highlighting work and accomplishments of university leadership and commitment in areas of operations, academics, and the overall student experience, this event also highlights campus and community initiatives, accomplishments, and opportunities related to sustainability and living (and working) green.
